Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GARY H Works Great!!!
As soon as these items were received, they were was assembled and put to work that evening - one in the front yard and one in the backyard.
Yes, we HAD deer problems, but no problems since the Spray Away was assembled and installed, one in the front yard and one in the back yard. Great coverage for smaller lots, but no matter the size, this motion activated sprinkler works. No more deer problem. The adjustable spray distance and motion detection distant really works well to suit your needs.
Only draw-back, there is no OFF and ON switch to save battery life during the day. I rigged up a cardboard shield to hang on the motion detection area during the day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gardener in the ravines Great deterrent, needs slight modification
I have used motion activated spray aways for many years and they work very well for me. I live near a ravine with many deer and have been able to enjoy my gardening. This is the second model I have purchased and I am disappointed with one feature. I am unable to turn off the device and must turn off the water at its source in order to stop the spray. The older version allowed me to turn off the sprayer temporarily and easily turn it back on. I am sorry that this feature was changed, but still strongly recommend these as deer deterrents.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jgira12 goodbye to all the critters....
I now have 4 of these defending the rear and sides of my house against deer, raccoon, skunks, and chipmunks. My main problem was raccoon tearing up my lawn in the middle of the night. I would have to follow up next morning with tamping down dozens of uprooted clumps of grass, which otherwise would turn brown and die. What's cool is my system is totally passive...I hooked up 12 hour timers so that during the day I can walk by and not get wet. I set them for 9:00 PM to 9:00 AM. The fidgety deer also have learned to stay away from the hostas and other edible plants. Be sure to take everything indoors at the end of the season, and replace batteries annually.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not what I hoped for Something was wrong with it.
I received it in the mail, went and bought plants, planning to put it out and plant the plants. I was hoping with the Spray Away the deer wouldn't eat my plants.. But since it would not work, I am trying to keep my plants a live until they received the old one and send a new one to me.
I understand these things happen but this is so disappointing!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Peter It looks like it would work
Screwed the female portion of the Spray Away to my hose and turned on the water. FAIL, the female portion released the hose, Splash, It was a sloppy fit. I siliconed it on to the hose, now I hope it doesn't fail when I'm not at home.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Socks Spray Away--Keep pests at bay
The product works well; however I have two concern. First and foremost--there is no on-off switch. Secondly-- the product is not solidly built, in essence it has been constructed from "flimsy" material and I would expect a short useful life.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rustle Saved my garden
We have always had deer using our garden like a salad bar. This year my frustration hit a high when they ate my lilies just before they bloomed. My plan was a motion detector connected to a high voltage cable but my girlfriend said no. Then I saw this little combo. The deer visits immediately stopped and my tomato plants are growing huge and giving wonderful fruit. The price is steep but it still uses the original batteries I installed and is easy to use. Now the cat is not happy with the new backyard addition.
